Today was the last day of Resolving the Mindset Riddle seminar with Paul Blackburn. This was all about how your emotions or storing your emotions can create negative health and he taught us how to keep our emotional buckets empty so we don’t explode with anger or burst into tears for no reason.
One interesting exercise we had to do was to stare into a partner’s eyes for a good five minutes. We really had to stare and try not to dart our eyes across the room. We each asked the quest ‘What is love’ to each other and had to try and answer it. My logical brain when into all the features of love; such as caring, compassion or doing anything for someone; however we had to ask each other the question 4 times. Eventually you run out of words. In the end I didn’t know what love was. Some people in the crowd go very emotional including a lady sitting close to me; she was very loud with tears. The exercise was interesting to say the least as I have never stared into someone’s eyes for that long.
The lady that was really in tears stood up at the end during the question time and said that she couldn’t feel love. She admitted that she was self-harming and couldn’t be bother living. The air was pretty thick in the room but Paul took control and helped her to calm down. The power in a few deep breaths is amazing. Paul also offered her free help from one of his coaches. A very noble thing to do, he is a genuinely caring person. I hope to hear how she goes with it all.
Later in the day we learnt how to keep our emotional buckets empty so that we don’t explode. The three main negative emotions are fear, anger and sadness. Each has a bucket inside us that if not emptied. As humans we tend to push our emotions down and fill our buckets until one day we explode over trivial things. These could be panic attacks (fear), explosions of anger, or tears for no reason. The idea is to keep them empty by watching tear jerking movies or getting angry at a punching bag. Both of these are now on our weekly list of things to do. Seems a bit strange but we are going to give it ago.
We did get hit with a little bit of selling during the last day of the seminar. What was great thought was that it was invited selling. We had a choice to be there unlike some other seminars I have been to. I signed up for a large package which included 8 emotional bootcamps. I am looking forward to them.
I can highly recommend the Resolving the Mindset Riddle workshops with Paul and Mary Blackburn. This is the best here.workshop I have been to. I started with the home pack which was great, you get a book, workbook, meditation CD’s, you can purchase your online
Good Luck everybody.
